Hey, party here guys =). We should be as good buddies as those accepted pals are.

Well I haven't received my rejection letter yet, but I'm sure it will come. So I think I'll hang out in this thread!

How's it going guys?

Caltech 2008

Or: Harvard 2008 (if I get in)
Or: Stanford 2008 (if I find a reason by May 1st to prefer this school and if I get in also)

0/6 at my school. Should humble that administration.

Caltech 2008! Thank god I got that EA acceptance. Totally took away all the dissappointment I had yesterday. :)

Oh boy. Another year of mind-numbingly retarded high school.

Hey Mical, what's your major?

Woo!! rejected unity!!!

Dear MIT,
I'm sorry that I didnt have time for varsity sports while I won state and national science/engineering competitions and making a difference in my community with my Eagle Scout service project. But I would have played club sports at your school if athletics is all that matters to you. Really. Scouts' honor. Meh. You're loss.

Where did everyone here apply to?
I'm still waiting to hear from Tufts, Johns Hopkins, PENN, Cornell, and BU. I got into Rensselaer with the medal and URI with a full scholarship.

Knightmare- have you got a letter yet?

wuttup guys

yea MIT for a student applying as a pakistani citizen whose lived in the US almost his whole(thus precluding him from winning those national pakistani awards)... anyhow who gives. stuff usually works out at the end anyhow and i got in wash u and cornell and all my freinds from school are going to UT where ill prolly get into a real good honors program so ya n there is april 1 around the corner... lots of choices.

but anyhow just a poll

Does knowing that you'll probably be rejected ease the blow?

I vote yes

By Killersnowgoon (Killersnowgoon) on Tuesday, March 16, 2004 - 07:09 pm: Edit

I vote yes - I felt schitzo the days before I got my letter - one moment I was thinking I could get in and the next I would feel like I had to get rejected. I'm much happier knowing.

By Mical (Mical) on Tuesday, March 16, 2004 - 07:10 pm: Edit

Probably physics (like every other Caltech applicant) so Caltech should be more than adequate.

Yea, it does make it easier if your expectations are low to begin with. I figured i could sneak in the humanities route since that's what I want to do anyway, and I probably would have gotten in that way but my math scores were comparitively crappy (700 SATI) and you have to demonstrate to them that you can handle the math/science load even if you're going to be majoring in something totally inrelated like political science soo...

By Amylase (Amylase) on Wednesday, March 17, 2004 - 11:34 pm: Edit

ok, now i received the official rejection from MIT.

By Pakitexan (Pakitexan) on Thursday, March 18, 2004 - 01:58 am: Edit

yea... haha its funny how theres not much to talk about now that were rejected.

in the words of a wise man: but what can u do?
